Prompting big league suits to adopt their "This time it counts" policy regarding the All-Star Game, the 2002 installment ended in disaster: a 7-7 deadlock with no available pitching arms. In attempt to pacify the disgruntled masses, baseball has since awarded home field advantage in the World Series to the All-Star Game's winning league. Presented is the actual American League on-deck circle used at Milwaukee's Miller Park for that infamous Mid-Summer Classic. Comprised of 3/8-inch thick rubber, this 93-1/2" diameter accessory features the Junior Circuit's eagle-themed logo and served as the preparatory stage for the likes of A-Rod, Ichiro, Jeter and Ramirez. Cleat marks and soiling are prevalent throughout on this most unique All-Star artifact. Originally auctioned by Major League Baseball, the item bears its authenticating hologram #TD00017060, which can be verified at MLB.com. Accompanying is the auction and shipping paperwork from the item's previous sale. Please note that due to the size and weight of this item, shipping costs may be substantial.
